My boss has this annoying habit: he waits until I'm on my way out the door, and then stops me to ask about something "important." He's done it several times. He did it last week and I was almost late to a performance because of it. He did it tonight, and I would have been late for rehearsal if lillibet hadn't called to remind me that my rehearsal was actually at 8, not 7.

Here's what I don't get: He's asked me to come in once a week to help out with transitioning the person who took over for me and with any computer issues that may arise. I've been coming in on Thursday afternoons, but they haven't had anything for me to do. I took the initiative and took care of some computer things for a co-worker, but mostly I've been sitting there twiddling my thumbs, occasionally answering the phone, asking my replacement if she needs help with anything, and surfing the web. So, why not come talk to me when I'm just sitting there doing nothing? Why wait until I have my coat on and my bag on my shoulder before asking me to solve his latest computer problem?!

I'm only sticking around BU for the health insurance — just a couple more months of this, and then I'm gone. I'm also switching to a Tuesday schedule after the New Year, and he has clinic on Tuesdays, so I'm hoping he'll be too busy to accost me in the hallways like this anymore. I'll be so glad when this is over.
